I been through the psychiatry for years and got several diagnoses wrong obviously. I've tried almost every med. All SSRI's which only makes me worse. My latest diagnosis is bipolar 2 which I really feel like is the right call. I've been on mirtazapine for almost a year and it has really helped me to shorten the depressive episodes which is good. 4 weeks ago I began on lamotrigine. From 25 to 50 and from 50 to 100. On 50 I felt some improvement but it could be the placebo effect? From 50 to 100 wasn't a good step sadly. My dreams became very vivid which coursed me to wake up every hour. It has been a little better after 5 days. Sleep is a little more stable. My problem now is that I feel jittery and overwhelmed somehow. Especially outside and among people. Is that a phase or something I should expect staying? I've read almost every user reviews but can't find anyone with that issue. Hope anyone can help
It could be the mix of both if I read it right that your on another one with the lamotrigine. It does take time for your body to get use to it and how it will react to your body as well. There are alot of side-effects you can also get from the drug as well.
